PALS español for PreK-3

The Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening in Spanish (PALS español) measures children’s developing knowledge of the fundamental components of Spanish literacy in PreK through third grade.  PALS español tasks are parallel to English PALS tasks, but are NOT translations.

The goal of PALS español is to provide Spanish-speaking children in the United States equal access to an effective, research-based literacy assessment and intervention.
